Psalm 34 - The Scriptures 1998

The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God

1. I bless יהוה  at all times; His praise is continually in my mouth.

2. My being makes its boast in יהוה ; Let the humble hear and be glad.

3. Oh, make יהוה  great with me, And let us exalt His Name together.

4. I sought יהוה, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.

5. They looked to Him and were lightened, And their faces were not ashamed.

6. This poor one cried out and יהוה  heard him, And saved him out of all his distresses.

7. The messenger of יהוה  encamps all around those who fear Him, And rescues them.

8. Oh, taste and see that יהוה  is good; Blessed is the man that takes refuge in Him!

9. Fear יהוה, you His set-apart ones, For there is no lack to them who fear Him!

10. Young lions have lacked and been hungry; But those who seek יהוה  lack not any good matter.

11. Come, you children, listen to me; Let me teach you the fear of יהוה.

12. Who is the man who desires life, Who loves many days, in order to see good?

13. Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit.

14. Turn away from evil and do good; Seek peace, and pursue it.

15. The eyes of יהוה  are on the righteous, And His ears unto their cry.

16. The face of יהוה  is against evil-doers, To cut off their remembrance from the earth.

17. The righteous cried out, and יהוה  heard, And delivered them out of all their distresses.

18. יהוה  is near to the broken-hearted, And saves those whose spirit is crushed.

19. Many are the evils of the righteous, But יהוה  delivers him out of them all.

20. He is guarding all his bones; Not one of them is broken.

21. Evil does slay the wrong, And those who hate the righteous are guilty.

22. יהוה  redeems the lives of His servants, And none of those taking refuge in Him are guilty.
